Re: Hearbleed

Hello i3Support and welcome,

 

The Heart Bleed Bug is something that Anti-Virus software should be able to handle or actual Operating Systems security implementation. This is " Nicknamed "Heartbleed," the "bug" is actually a weakness in OpenSSL's cryptographic software that makes SSL/TLS encryption backfire on computer users.  ", as I under stand it. There is no inherent security in ANY gateway, router, etc. to combat this type of hacker issue. 

 

Hope this helps you out.
